    Can a felon ever work in the Healthcare field?
    I am an ex-offender with a criminal background and a felony. I am trying to get into the healthcare field, my calling. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on a position that I could go to college for and get hired afterwards. I am very determined and don't want to waste time or money on any courses that I will not be able to complete or be turned away from for a job due to my background. Thanks

    Getting a felony and misdemeanor expunged
    Can I get my past record expunged in NC and then get a job in the medical/Healthcare field? Also could any employer pull up expunged records? Thanks

    Sorry but the healthcare field in any country is pretty elite and guarded. Under no circumstances would you ever be able to go back to that type of work.

    Sorry, no,

    You will have to pick another job area.

    In heath care, if you have any patient contact you can not have any felony and even some non felonies on your record.

    Iím sorry, but no, there are no healthcare careers that allow felons. Most colleges will do a background check prior to admissions in the healthcare field.
